Once again Chopra misses the point in favor of furthering his own flimsy agenda. Magical thinking is advantageous from an evolutionary standpoint only because it helps us conceive of abstract or "soft" solutions to real-world or "hard" problems. Without science magical thinking is all we would have to explain our surroundings, but the kicker is that without magical thinking there would be no science and no innovation.

"To call our craving for beauty, love, spiritual significance, and self-worth an evolutionary trait or the result of a genetic imprint is extremely foolish."

And extremely accurate. Get a clue Chopra.
